Pitchers


PiTCHERS-TALL WATER (Downward Spout)

Description: There are two different styles of these very large water pitchers: upward spouts and downward spout ones. This page is devoted to the downward spout water pitchers. Although they look very much alike here are four differences: downward spouts not upwards, a flower and continuous leaves on handle not separated leaves and no flower (see picture of handles), smooth handles not 7 raised ribs on the handles, wider top openings not narrower openings (see picture of top openings).

PITCHERS-TALL WATER (Upward Lip, Tall Loop Handle)

Description:  There are two different styles of these very large water pitchers: upward lips and downward lip ones. This page is devoted to the upward pouring lip water pitchers. Although they look very much alike here are four differences: upward pouring lips not downward, separated leaves and no flower on handles not a flower and continuous leaves (see picture of handles), 7 raised ribs on the handles not smooth handles, narrower top openings not wider top openings (see picture of top openings).

PITCHERS-WATER (Wide Downward Lip, Tall Loop Handle)

Description:  Water Pitchers or Milk Pitchers? We are sure these pitchers were used for both purposes. Additionally, at what size level do they become cream pitchers? These pitchers are stately in their largest sizes and as they become smaller they are squater. Their characteristics are tall loop handles and wide downward pouring lips. All have one continuous Canton scene around the pitchers, all have rain cloud borders near the rims and all but one has leaves on the handles (see picture). The bottoms are glazed.
